32nd Annual Zlatne Uste Golden Festival, Brooklyn, NYC, 13-14 Jan 2017

32nd Annual Zlatne Uste Golden Festival

Jan 13th & 14th, 2017
Grand Prospect Hall
263 Prospect Ave,
Brooklyn, New York 11215

Joy is the modus vivendi for this Pan-Balkan gathering, and music is the recipe, bringing the traditional, the experimental, elders, youth, foreign-born, and American-born all to feast at the same generous table. With more than 50 groups contributing their time and talents, you will find your cup of tea (as well as some feta, dolma, and spiced meat morsels). High spirits are fueled by such preeminent performers as Eleanor Reissa with Frank London’s Klezmer Brass Allstars, or Merita Halili, Raif Hyseni & Montclair State University Ensemble, while burgeoning talents shine in teen band Cocek Nation and Young Bulgarian Voices New York. Enchantment pervades the Atrium where Tenores de Aterúe, the Yale Slavic Chorus, and others immerse listeners in vocal wonderment. Brooklyn’s own beloved Balkan brass acts (Slavic Soul Party, Raya) are well represented, and of course Zlatne Uste, New York’s pioneering Balkan brass band and festival sponsors, performs both nights. A complete schedule will be posted on the website
